Table 5 Lesion Volume with 100% Normal Tissue Perfusion. Values represent the total volume of tissue necroses calculated over the course of the simulated ablation using various cell damage thresholds (D) and isothermal temperatures (IT).

From: Thermal modeling of lesion growth with radiofrequency ablation devices

Source Voltage (Volts) D = 63% (mm3) D = 100% (mm3) IT = 42°C (mm3)1 IT = 47°C (mm3)1 IT = 60°C (mm3) IT = 90°C (mm3)
